's important as well as moving ahead with some of these other things. comprehensive energy policy, things we really need to do because there's been too much time wasted on hearings that don't matter and people trying to do sound bites, as great as they are on your show, i think people want to see people willing to work together, and i really heard it in our state. >> would you like to be president? >> i love being the senator from minnesota. that's way want to do. we have a great state. you should come and visit land of 10,000 lakes. you'd have all kind of water to walk on. >> was that yes or no? >> that was a no. i couldn't be clearer. i love being the senator from minnesota. that's my job. >> others are talking about it. anyway, thank you. congratulations, senator klobuchar of minnesota. a great state which i know a bit about. thank you. >>> let's go now to amy sullivan of the new republic. amy is in your column in these -- about these two men, you wrote about-mile-an-hour you can do and akin. you said they lost because they each made the mistake of trying to explain an increasingly common
. at the end of the day the election was about the economy and jobs and debt and energy. and i thought our candidates had a good message on that. but we didn't connect with enough of the people that were those voters that come out only in presidential years. 45% of vote came out to vote for me for governor. i won by 18 points but when the vote gets up to 76% we only get 48% of the vote. so that's what we've got to figure out. those more occasional voters, independent voters, how do we do better? obviously we'll have a lot of discussions about that. >> are you among those who blame chris christie? you're a governor with a lot of weather issues and dealt with fema, dealt with fema under democratic presidents, do you agree with critics of chris christie for embracing the president? >> president obama won the race. mitt romney lost the race. he was a great candidate. the storm did halt momentum that mitt romney built up after that -- after the first debate. look, chris christie was the first governor to endorse mitt romney, did more events around the country than about anybody. he was trying t
, energy. we need to get the wheels turning. i'm proud of that. making real things... for real. ...that make a real difference. ♪ >>> thanks to you all for a terrific conversation. before we go a quick programming note for my press pass covers this week, i sat down with buzzfeed.com editor and chief ben smith to talk about what really really was the first presidential campaign in the social media era. you can watch it at "meet the press" nbc.com, that's all for today. a special day for "meet the press," as we celebrate turning 65 years old, proud to be the longest-running television program in the world. truly is humbling to be a custodian of such an important american institution. we will be back next week. if it's sunday, it's "meet the press."
and the energy on the ground. so the fact that he won it was wonderful. it was a little icing on the cake, like i say, very proud for our president and our florida. >> let's show everybody. the final vote count in florida shows president obama eking out this slim win. 74,000 of vote victory. but it was the second straight time that he carried the state. it has been solidly republican in the past. do you think florida is more blue or purplish nowadays going forward? >> it's sort of a purple-blue, if you will. i think that you're right. in past elections, george bush did very well here. but starting with president obama, it's been trending more and more democratic. and i think a lot of that is what's happening in the i-4 corridor. pinellas county, st. petersburg, my home, hillsboro county here in tampa, both went for the president. but more significantly, orange and osceola counties, you had a great turnout of new puerto r o ricans that made a huge difference in this election, with the immigration issue, of course. >> one thing we need to discuss is the situation in florida. it was an 11-page ball
superior, mr. clapper, head of all the energies services? why did he get confronted with basically a request to resign? how did that happen if this wasn't criminal, what he was doing? >> because he wasn't on active duty, and, of course, in the military under the uniform code of military justice, marital infidelity is a criminal offense. not so in -- >> even for retirees i understand. >> well, not if you're retired. you're no longer under the code of military justice. >> well, i just got a different reading on that. i just got a different reading on that ten minutes ago but maybe you're right. >> so the lawyers can fight over this, chris. you're right. but the larger point is that the shame that he feels he's brought upon himself and his service trumps any legal niceties, and he i'm sure felt that he had to resign because he'd really violated the trust that everyone in the military had in him, even though he was retired. don't forget that he was -- go ahead, chris, i'm listening. >> the other general allen who is now leading our services is a more live question. how does he explain
, tax reform, deficit reduction, alternative energy. and as alicia said, many of them not only were central in the campaign and people voted for the president, some of them that were not central in the campaign when polled, americans seem to be going that way. are we seeing the second term the president obama bring in more of progressive policies than we've seen in a long time? >> i think he thinks he has a mandate and certainly the progressive message did very well on election day. i do think immigration is one area where republicans are very nervous and they would do very well to kind of step up and start working on comprehensive reform. otherwise they're going to have a lot more elections like this one, where they are just getting throttled on that issue in the latino community. but also as we talk about the budget's going to be addressed, obama care now is not going to be on the table like it was last time around. and a lot more wiggle room on issues like, you know, climate change and jobs and stuff like that for the the president to maneuver. >> alicia, what do you feel is the
. keeping this country at the forefront of research, technology and clean energy. putting people back to work, rebuilding our roads, our bridges and our schools. and reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. now on this last item, we face a very clear deadline that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes, and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this deadline and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. yesterday i had a chance to meet with labor and civic leaders for their input, today i'm meeting with ceos of some of america's largest companies. and i'll meet with leaders of both parties of congress before the week is out because there's only one way to solve these challenges and that is to do it together. as i've said before, i'm open to compromise and new ideas. and i've been encouraged over the past week to hear republican after republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of our arithmetic if we're going to be serious about redu
in the golan heights. it doesn't have the time or energy to invest in syria, but if things spiral out of control, how much pressure does that also put on israel to act? >> i think the israelis have been pretty clear, including in the last few days, that they have absolutely no interest in getting involved in what's going on in syria. there's so many different reasons for that. first of all, it's an intractable conflict. beyond that, none of the actors involved are pro-israelis. the worst thing they can do is get involved in the conflict and give the regime some kinld of political cover saying we're not just fighting against revolutionaries but against israeli spies and the massad. from israel's perspective they have nuch problems dealing with gaza. the last thing that they need is to add to that plate, and what can be gained by getting involved in syria from the israel's perspective? whoever wins in syria from israel's perspective is the enemy. >> that's right. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> up next, oh, mitt. why can't you just leave well enough alone? first we heard romn
